PLUR Angels is a non profit organization focused on harm reduction. Volunteers attend EDM festivals and events providing support to attendees by way of extra supplies and education, and to medical staff by acting as extra eyes and ears. PLUR Angels are not medical staff or law enforcement. They are observers and advocates, helping keep our community safe.
What Are The Requirements for Volunteers?
Before filling out the volunteer application please check to make sure that you meet the requirements. If you have questions, contact us and we're happy to help.
Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age and understand all PLUR Angels protocols and procedures. These are in our Volunteer Handbook and Policy Manual. We require our volunteers to commit to an event at least once every six months to retain an active status.
Our volunteers are upbeat, positive and have a keen sense of perception. They understand their roles and do not overstep them. Volunteers provide evidence-based education and health supplies onsite, getting attendees items they run out of or didn't bring, and help medical staff work efficiently. They do not provide medical care.
What's A Typical Night Volunteering Look Like?
When you volunteer with PLUR Angels you attend EDM festivals and events. Enjoy the music and the energy of your peers while serving to reduce harm. A typical night includes communicating with other volunteers, observing risky behaviors, providing attendees with water, sanitary items, condoms etc. and making sure those who need help get appropriate medical care.
Angels interact with guests, checking in and providing health items. They also encourage safe behaviors like hydration breaks, self-assessment, the buddy system, safe sex precautions, and hearing protection through the use of earplugs etc.
Our volunteer program is a way for people to invest in supporting their community. They have the courage to increase public awareness about the health related issues facing our population, as well as the safety of participants at music events and festivals.
You have the opportunity to gain a deeper awareness in knowing you are impacting the lives of those around you.
